I miss you like yesterday
I miss you like yesterday
Yeah, I know it sound cliché
And they tell me just to pray, but
I miss you like yesterday

from Big KRIT – Yesterday Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

As KRIT has expressed on several occasions, he mourns the loss of his grandmother. His hook here reaches deep; those close to him tell him to just pray, but not even that helps ease the pain sometimes.

Yesterday is used for this simile because it is something in the past, something that will always be remembered, but something you can’t actually go back to and have.
